‘When You’re Here, Let’s Speak AMERICAN!!’ – Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin agreed with el Trumpo that everyone should speak only “American” while they’re in America, even as she praised Jeb’s Hispanic relations.
Y’all are insane if you think you can reach out to Hispanics and also yell at them “speak English!!” all the time. I thought conservatives were about free speech? Like, literally, it is free speech when I talk to my family in Spanish. And I’m supportive of making all government documents officially in English and in no other language. But you’re talking about keeping government out of our private lives one minute and then the next saying we have to leave the country to speak another language? Absurd.
When I posted this at the Right Scoop, I got this comment in response:
I have filed complaints at Home Depot 2 times for the packaging of products turned with the Spanish facing out and I had to turn the boxes around to see and compare products. The second time I walked out without a purchase.
Nothing ever came back for HD to me so I guess they do not care.
Seriously people? America defeated the Nazis and the Commies, and we conquered the frickin’ MOON, but we’re out filing complaints because we have to turn a product around on the shelf at Home Depot? Surely there are more important things to get your panties bunched up over?
Also got this one:
When I call Lowes for example, why do I have to press 1 for English or 2 for Spanish? Retail and packaging in English and Spanish. There are many other languages. Why do Spanish speaking people get special treatment? It’s absurd and so is your statement/argument.
No right minded person cares if you speak Spanish to your family and friends. But living in a country whos official language is English, people should learn it and speak it in the majority of public situations.
So I called Lowes. This is what I heard: “Oprima el numero tres para Espanol.” I didn’t have to press anything to continue in English, it was asking if you wanted to hear it in Spanish. Really people? Just the mere mention of a Spanish word makes you implode into a fit of paralyzed rage?
We’re better than this, America. Or we should be.
